Waterloo Tower, Quex by Andy Tuohy (Limited Edition Print)

£160.00

Built in 1819 to house a twelve bell peel made at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry which was too big for the local church, Waterloo Tower in the grounds of Quex Park in Birchington-on-Sea commemorates Wellington’s men.  The distinctive cast iron spire sits on four octagonal four storey turrets built of red bricks from the Faversham brickfields. Modelled on Faversham Church spire it was described by Pevsner as a ‘remarkably daring achievement for its date’ and acts as a landmark for Quex Park and The Powell-Cotton Museum which sits within the grounds. An attraction in itself the Museum houses dioramas created by Percy Powell-Cotton in the late nineteenth century, alongside an extensive collection of natural history specimens and cultural objects.

Designer and illustrator Andy Tuohy perfectly captures the history of the tower in a new artwork available from Lombard Street Gallery, with animals from the dioramas making an appearance in the grounds. The print, available in an edition of 100, adds a modern, yet historic, addition to his popular series of location pictures.

 Limited edition giclee print. Edition of 100, signed by the artist.
